Subject: Works much better than expected
I found myself actually reading the book by Henry James (and likely will as soon as the magnify feature is working). This is by far the best format I've seen for reading books on computer. I love reading books, but I've always hated reading anything more than articles a few pages long on my computer. This could change things. I could see myself reading a book on my laptop in bed.

Subject: great book but what about the pdf?
... link from openlibrary.org to pdf doesn't work, a direct search on archive.org gets to this page gives a working link, but, can't make anything from the pdf (using latest version Acrobat).

Okay, not much of a review, but couldn't see another way to report the problem.

Regards,
Hans

Subject: great concept
This is a great proof of concept for bringing books alive on the web and then into our hands again. This realizes the dreams of people throughout the ages of knowledge for all and guarantees that future generations will have open libraries even if they're not exactly what we remeber from our youth. Way to go Brewster.
